“How could this mother leaning over the cradle imagine that her little girl’s eyes would see thing this way? The little Vaysha had been born with a left eye that only saw the past and a right eye that only saw the future. ” – Narrator

Brief Synopsis – A tale about a young girl who has one eye that sees the past and one the future as she tries to navigate her way through this confusing life.
My Take on it – I’ve never been the biggest fan of non-conventional animation and wasn’t really sure what I would think of this movie.
Since I like to watch all of the Oscar nominated films, good or bad, I decided to check out this short film.
I found the animation itself to be a bit jarring and distracting, but the fact that the story is such a poignant one makes up for it all.
I liked the way that they start telling us a story that seems like a fable or fairy tale and once you think about it, you realize how it’s a philosophical tale that is meant for all of us to embrace because it is so relevant!
Having seen 4 of the 5 nominees in the category, I must say that I’m not sure who I want to win because 3 of the 4 are amazing films and the 4th is close behind.
Bottom Line – Very poignant film that seems to start off telling a fable when in the end it can be seen as a parable for real life. The animation is done in quite a unique and somewhat distracting way, yet still evokes a sense of endearment for the story. Highly Recommended!
